The youthful, fresh-faced look we all want doesn’t happen with just plump cheeks and tight skin. The secret ingredient to healthy-looking skin is hydration. Hydrating the skin from within makes it appear more luminous. There’s a new FDA-approved injectable in modern aesthetics that does just this. 

If you’re after that dewy, glowing complexion and smoother cheeks, SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® may be perfect for you.

With SKINVIVE™ being the first and only product of its kind, we’re super excited to be one of the first to offer this game-changing treatment here at Simply.Aesthetics Manasquan, New Jersey, and the surrounding areas.

What is SKINVIVE™?

You won’t find anything else like SKINVIVE™ on the market. It’s the first FDA-approved microdroplet injectable with hyaluronic acid (HA) in the US specifically designed to smooth out your cheeks. It doesn’t just hydrate your skin and help it retain its natural moisture and softness; it gives you that enviable glow that lasts up to six months with the right treatment.

In a clinical study, patients who tried SKINVIVE™ couldn’t stop raving about how refreshed, hydrated, and downright healthy their skin looked.

How Does It Work?

SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® is a smooth hyaluronic acid (HA) gel infused with a small amount of lidocaine. While some injectables primarily aim to enhance and add volume to facial features, SKINVIVE™ takes a different approach by focusing on increasing skin hydration specifically in the cheeks.

Hyaluronic acid is like a magnet for moisture and is naturally present in your skin. As we age and get too much sun exposure, our HA levels dip, leading to changes in texture and that dreaded dull appearance. This is where SKINVIVE™ steps in to save the day.

What Is a Treatment Like?

During your SKINVIVE™ treatment, an injector will administer the hyaluronic acid gel through a series of small injections. To achieve your desired results, we may recommend a touch-up treatment one month after your initial injection treatment.

Our skilled injectors at Simply.Aesthetics know just where to place it –  between the layers of skin (intradermally) – to help your skin hold onto its natural moisture and keep it looking smooth and glowy. 

SKINVIVE™ works its magic without altering your facial structure. Dermatologist Amelia K. Hausauer describes it perfectly to Harper’s BAZAAR as “tiny sprinklings” of HA that perk up your skin’s hydration, amp up light reflection, and give you a smoother canvas to work with.

What Are The Benefits?

In a study with over 200 participants, the FDA found that SKINVIVE™ was effective in improving skin smoothness in the cheeks, with the effects lasting at least six months.

Allergan Aesthetics found in clinical studies that SKINVIVE™ patients were thrilled with how their skin looked and felt—hydrated, refreshed, and all-around healthy. The benefit that truly got them hooked on the treatment was the overall glow it provided.

SKINVIVE™ is like a breath of fresh air in the medical aesthetics market. While Botox® and Dysport are smoothing things out, SKINVIVE™ steps in to amp up the hydration in areas where those muscle relaxers might not be the perfect fit—such as your cheeks. And here’s the kicker: it doesn’t just smooth, it hydrates too!

When Will I See My Results?

You might start seeing some changes in your cheek skin texture within a few days of your SKINVIVE™ injections, but it could take up to a month to see the full effect: that smoother, more radiant glow you’re after. Just be patient—smooth, glowing skin is on its way!

How Long Does It Last?

SKINVIVE™ is all about that lasting glow. Results can last for up to 6 months after treatment, but everyone’s skin and skincare routine is different, so it can vary.

Am I a Candidate?

As we age, our cheeks can lose volume and look a bit hollow. While other fillers just plump things up or smooth out lines without addressing the quality of the skin itself, SKINVIVE™ is all about hydrating your skin from the inside out, giving it that youthful glow you’ve been missing. If you’re after smoother, more youthful-looking skin, SKINVIVE™ could be just what you need.

If you’re noticing dullness, fine lines, and wrinkles in your cheeks and want to perk them up for a smoother, brighter, and more hydrated appearance, then you may just be a perfect fit for SKINVIVE™.

If you’re hoping to make big changes to your facial contour or fill in areas with lots of lost volume, however, SKINVIVE™ may not be the answer you’re looking for. This injectable is more about giving your skin a boost of hydration than completely reshaping your face like some volumizing fillers do.

Who Shouldn’t Use It?

If you relate to any of the following, we don’t recommend SKINVIVE™ to you:

  • You have a history of severe allergies that led to anaphylaxis
  • You’re known to have multiple severe allergies
  • You’re allergic to lidocaine

Preparing For Your Treatment

Your safety and satisfaction is our top priority, and the best way to be safe and happy with your results is to be fully prepared. Here are our tips for preparing for your SKINVIVE™ injections:

  • Before your appointment, be sure to let us know if you’re taking any blood-thinning medications like aspirin or ibuprofen as they could increase the risk of bruising or bleeding at the treatment site.
  • If you’re planning any other procedures like a laser treatment or chemical peel shortly after your SKINVIVE™ session, let us know.
  • Be sure to mention to us ahead of time if you have a history of thick, hard scars or pigmentation disorders.
  • Please let us know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Aftercare, Risks & Side Effects

There’s no big downtime to plan following your SKINVIVE™ treatment. We just recommend taking it easy for the first 24 hours to give your skin the time it needs to soak in all the goodness of the product. This means skipping the gym for a day, avoiding sun exposure as much as possible while wearing sun protection, and steering clear of alcohol.

While SKINVIVE™ is generally safe and effective, like with any dermal filler, there are some risks to be aware of. Rarely, there’s a possibility of injecting into a blood vessel, which could result in vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or permanent scarring of the skin. Our highly experienced injectors at Simply.Aesthetics prioritize safety and precision during every treatment.

We advise against using SKINVIVE™ in areas with active skin conditions such as acne, cysts, or rashes, as doing so could potentially worsen these issues or delay their healing process.

Possible side effects of SKINVIVE™ injections may include:

  • Temporary redness
  • Lumps
  • Tenderness
  • Bruising and swelling
  • Discomfort
  • Firmness
  • Discoloration
  • Itchiness at the injection site

Most of these effects typically resolve within 7 days and can be managed with medications if necessary.

Other less common side effects may include dry skin, changes in sensation, blood vessel blockage, the formation of nodules, allergic reactions, or feelings of anxiety. If you experience any concerns or unusual symptoms, be sure to reach out to us as soon as possible.
